20 Plant-Based Bowls Under 500 Calories

If you’re looking for some recipes to nourish your healthy eating goals, then you’ll really want to check out this fabulous collection of 20 Plant-Based Bowls under 500 Calories. These bowls have a few things in common: they are 100% plant-based (vegan), rich in protein and nutrients, satisfying and delicious, and contain 350-500 calories per bowl. The bowl trend is a great way to kick off your healthy, plant-based eating style, as you can build the foundations of a great plant-based meal when making a bowl. You layer in a healthy grain, loads of veggies, a plant protein, and flavorful toppings and sauces. And voila, you have a nutrient-rich, calorie-controlled meal perfect for your healthy lifestyle. I recommend 350-500 calories per meal for most people (unless they have high energy needs) to achieve a healthy weight while meeting their nutrient needs. Any lower than that, then you will likely feel hungry and deprived. Check out these beautiful, nourishing bowls to celebrate your healthy goals!
